Lol - Thanks guys. I know you are trying to save me from myself here. I appreciate it, and normally I would give the exact same advice. I have been rescued from insanity many times by fellow cafe'ers. I still might suffer nutshrivel and slide Scheff in, but my gut is screaming at me like it hasn't in a while. Last time I felt like this I was telling people to start Mike Anderson over LT back in 2005 . . . LT had a 2 td game, but so did Mike Anderson.
Apone, I went back and looked at the stats for the last five weeks. Just for kicks I wondered if they had been playing tougher vs TEs, or if they were just playing crappier TEs.
Their last 5 games have been vs. DET, NYJ, JAC, CHI, and GB.
Below are the stats of those teams' starting TEs, next to their [bracketed per-game averages]
GB - Donald Lee, 3rec/22yds 0TDs [20.5ypg - 4tds on the year]
CHI - Greg Olsen 5rec/40yds 0tds [30.6ypg - 2tds]
JAC - Marcedes Lewis 1rec/19yds [29.5ypg - 2tds]
NYJ - Dustin Keller - 6rec/42yds [38.3ypg - 3tds]
DET - John Owens? - 1 rec/10yds [1.5ypg - 0tds]
So with the exception of Lewis, every starting TE TEN played in the last 5 weeks performed over their yearly average. So it's not like they were tougher the last 5 weeks, they just played teams that didn't throw as much to TEs.
I don't know. CLE throws to TEs a lot. Maybe Scheff outperforms Heiden, but I bet you Heiden has a solid game. I can't beleive how much time I have spent researching this guy . . . sheesh.
I'll let you know who I end up starting. And thanks again for jumping in and trying to save me from myself. It's appreciated, even if I do end up starting Heiden.
